In time, years, dust settles.
In memory, ages, God emerges.
Then when we look back, we see God's back.
God reveals himself in rearview mirrors.
And I've an inkling that there are times when we need to drive a long, long distance, before we can look back and see God's back in the rearview mirror.
Maybe sometimes about as far as heaven - that kind of distance.
